This Cornell Museum is in Orlando, Florida not Ithaca, New York.  Its full name is the George D. and Harriet W. Cornell Fine Arts Museum which I shortened to Cornell Fine Arts Museum. Quite the mouth full especially to try to remember.  The inside of the museum had a lot to off and the architecture of the outside was super interesting with its arches and turrets like a castle.  Behind the museum I thought I spied a huge expansive lake so I kind of walked behind to see if there were any access points and there was a LOVELY trail to the water and along the shore.  I almost didn’t check it out, but here we will stroll along the lake shore of the super large Lake Virginia. It is all part of Rollins College located in Winter Park which I think is a part of Orlando or should be.  Here is a map of the area from Google Maps:

Walking behind the Cornell Fine Arts Museum I discovered a large garden of blooming azaleas and huge cypress trees along the shore of the lake:

The Crepe Myrtle Trees had some of the mysterious Spanish Moss on them that I like.  The trees by the shore were literally covered by the moss.
